Clients who discover the benefits of an ear candle treatment will continue to keep coming back, bringing you a core of loyal, returning customers. The candles work using the process of convection. The burning of the candle helps to draw softer waxes and toxins from the ear. Some of these are then oxidised or turned into vapours and burnt. The warm air from the burning candle passes into the ear canal before being gently drawn back up to the top of the candle in a chimney effect. The warm air containing the herbal extract vapours from the candle helps to soothe and invigorate the ear.
The GTi Ear Candles course covers how to give a full ear candle treatment and covers the history, technique and aftercare of the treatment.
The course also covers reception and consultation, and contra-indications to treatment. It also includes detailed technique modules which show you how to carry out an ear candle treatment.
The course is beautifully written and accompanied by images, diagrams and a voice-over to give you the best possible learning experience.
The course is fully accredited by the Guild of Beauty Therapists, the UK's leading professional beauty trade body, for membership and insurance purposes. Upon completion of the course, students will receive a full-colour certificate for a GTi Award in Ear Candles.
